Design a new course


This page will provide links and guidance on the creation of a new face to face course. We will provide documents to help your design the learning outcomes and to help you make the course inclusive. There is also links to other areas of the university including Quality Assurances Service to guide you through the formal process of getting a new course approved. 

Quality Assurance

Embedding Inclusivity 

Below you will find a link to resources that support and guide the creation of inclusive and accessible courses and curricula.

Course Development Principles

These nine principles are fundamental and underpin the design of all our undergraduate and postgraduate courses. They aim to enhance students’ satisfaction, achievement, employability and engagement in their studies.

Course teams are responsible for adopting the academic principles and applying them to all aspects of their course design and delivery.

There is more information and links to the downloadable guide on this dedicated page.

Personalised Learning

In order for all students to absorb and process concepts, content and learning materials, it will be necessary to adopt a more differentiated approach to your teaching.

Level Learning Outcomes

We build our courses around academic levels of study. We assess our students at each level and we name our awards according to the level of study completed.  How can we design modules and courses, and assess students with confidence that our notions of levelness are comparable across modules, across courses, and across awards?  Levelness and progression across the levels of an award is built through the design of appropriate learning outcomes. Learning outcomes are the drivers of assessment and of the learning activities which support students towards those assessments. We have created a guidance document available to download to support you through this process.

Embedding Graduate Attributes

The University has three interlinking Graduate Attributes, which have been embedded throughout all our undergraduate courses: these attributes are Enterprise, Digital Literacy and Global Outlook. These are embedded in the learning outcomes, content and assessment of every undergraduate course. They define the distinctiveness of our LBU graduates. More information about each attribute and how you can embed them in your courses can be found on the link below.
